  Mothers of all kinds like to show their love for their children and though a mother elephant might not be able to put her arms around her little one, she can still find her own special elephant way to be affectionate and loving with her calf.
  In this simply written little book the author explores the way in which a mother cat, a mother parrot, a mother polar bear, a mother elephant, a mother swan, a mother monkey, and human mother hug their children. Whether it is nuzzle, a squeeze, a pat or a nibble, each kind of hug is warm with love.
  With delightful richly textured and brightly colored artwork, this board book is just the perfect size for small hands. It will give mothers a wonderful way to share time with their little children and it can also serve as a tool to reinforce the special bond that exists between a mother and her child.
